Piling Up Points

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
Is it possible that under the NHL's new accounting system, a team could record 100 points and actually miss the playoffs? One of the more curious byproducts of the new NHL is the illusion that with only a handful of exceptions, just about every team seems to be doing pretty well these days. The reason — or the culprit, if you will — is the latest tweak to the NHL standings, the inclusion of the shootout loss.
